Boston College: Continuing to Fall

Boston College

Joining the Atlantic Coast Conference in 2005 The Boston College Eagles came out red hot making bowl appearances their first six years and winning the Atlantic Division title in 2007 & 2008. Problem is the most successful years (2007 & 2008) in that six year reign came under Jeff Jagodzinski who was 20-8 with the two divisional titles. Jeff Jagodzinski was fired after the 2008 season for interviewing for the New York Jets job after he was told not to by previous athletic director Gene DeFilippo. This decision has haunted the Boston College Eagles, becuse since 2009 they are 21-30 with NO division titles. This off season the Eagles hired Steve Addazio who I think is still the wrong guy and the reason why Boston College will continue to fall.

Steve Addazio inherited a pretty solid Temple Owls program from current Miami (FL) head coach Al Golden. With Al Golden’s core players in 2011 Steve Addazio had a nine win season, but once his own system and players were more in place in 2012 he only managed four wins. He was apart of the 2006 and 2008 Florida Gators national championship teams as the offensive line coach. After Dan Mullen left for Mississippi State he was promoted to offensive cordinator. In 2009 he was very successful but he had major help from NFL talent and a Heisman trophy winner at quarterback. In 2010 the gators had to lean on Addazio transitioning new players but they ended up having a mediocre 7-6 season. Now he is expected to fix a Boston College team who is coming off their worse season since 1978. It seems that if Addazio is not put in the right situation, he is not successful and he will not be the answer Boston College is looking for.
